Please join Insight Arts as we present our first winter series’ Nights of Insight on Friday, January 20 from 7 to 9 PM at Rumble Arts Center (3413 W North Ave). This is an accessible event.
This month we will be Re-Framing Community (facilitated by Baraka de Soleil) exploring issues and challenges artists face in the creative process. Topics to be explored include community, gender politics and artists’ vulnerabilities. Participants will also get the chance to experience the process of Re-Frame.
Last month artists participating in Re-Frame: A Gathering, a D UNDERBELLY initiative curated by Awilda Rodríguez Lora and Baraka de Soleil, sought to create a communal space for rigorous experimentation and investigation of an expansive performance aesthetic. They offered three unique showings of their process in partnership with Insight Arts, Rumble Arts Center and Links Hall.
Artist participants from Chicago’s 2011 Re-Frame project:
Sojourner Zenobia Wright
Isaac Fosl Van-Wyke
Eboni Senai Hawkins
We also invite you to join us in Rogers Park on Saturday, January 21 for a critical discussion on Re-Framing Community from 4:30 to 6:30 PM at the Center for New Possibilities (1505 W Morse Ave).
Artist participants, witnesses, co-sponsoring organization affiliates and special guests will be present to engage in fertile dialogue surrounding what it means to re-frame creative process within community. Both events are free of charge.
